As current events continue to unfold, the health and safety of our participants is our top priority. Based on guidance we've received from the county and state public health officials, we are confident that we are able to provide the workshop in a safe space with the utmost in precautions taken. The space is large with plenty of indoor/outdoor workspace and we have opened only a small number of tickets to assure plenty of room for social distancing. We believe that the workshop value is great enough that we are going forward. We have adjusted the ticket price to DONATION only. We hope you will join us!

Invite for the EPIPHANY LAB Scenario Planning POP-UP Workshop

March 18 from 2 - 6:30 PM

At The 3rd Place

2000 W. 30th Avenue, Denver, CO 80211

This visual, creative, problem solving popup is a Scenario Planning Workshop

for neighbors, community conveners, and business owners. We will explore and create possible futures with targeted action plans to get ahead of the impact of COVID-19 and discover ways to stay ahead and thrive.

We will explore these wicked questions:

How do you stay in business and thrive in the face of a pandemic?

Have you thought about the “what if” questions?

Do you know what you should do?

Do you have a plan?

· What if schools close? What might that mean for your employees?

· Have you designed your workflow to stay on track if everyone is remote?

· Have you thought about your "duty of care" for your employees?

· What work-arounds might you imagine to get product to your clients?

· Is your supply chain at risk?

This Scenario Planning Workshop will help you


We are all facing a lot of uncertainty and possibly fear around the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We fall in 2 groups- those who are paralyzed by fear and those who are curious and actively making plans.

That’s where creative, problem-solving scenario planning can provide some much-needed clarity.

We will use a Visual Human Centered Design Process:
